AquaSonus™ Passive-Sonar Pool Alarm Wins CES 2006 Innovations Award
Consumer Electronics Association to Recognize AquaSonus’ Excellence in Design and Engineering at 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show

AquaSonus, LLC, a leader in aquatic security, has received the prestigious Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®) Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase Honoree Award in the Software/Embedded Technology category for its AquaSonus™ passive-sonar pool alarm system.  As a winner, the company’s AquaSonus™ aquatic security system will be showcased in the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) Innovations Plus area.  This elite showcase recognizes products and technologies that exemplify excellence in design and engineering.

“We are honored to have the Consumer Electronics Association recognize our AquaSonus™ passive-sonar pool alarm system for its engineering excellence and superior design,” said Bill Roberts, co-founder of AquaSonus, LLC.  “This product is based on the idea of embedding advanced computer technologies, passive sonar and wireless communications in a package which the user will find easy to use, simple to install and provides highly accurate intrusion detection.”

The goal in designing this product was to help prevent child drownings in residential swimming pools.  The AquaSonus passive-sonar pool alarm system is the first aquatic security system incorporating leading edge sensor technologies with advanced embedded computing power.  This patent pending innovative design offers a technically advanced consumer product providing rapid, accurate detection and immediate notification of a child falling into an unsupervised swimming pool.  When installed, the system’s sensors and computers constantly monitor the pool water environment.  The system listens to the sounds of the pool with a built-in hydrophone.  As soon as a child falls into the pool, alarms at poolside and in the home sound immediately

AquaSonus collaborated on the design of the AquaSonus pool alarm system with Acton, Massachusetts based Product Insight, Inc., an internationally acclaimed product design and development firm.

The Innovations Design and Engineering awards are sponsored by the CEA, producer of the CES, and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA).  More than 1000 entries from 160 countries were evaluated on their innovation, value, aesthetics and quality of life contribution.  The International CES is the world’s largest annual consumer technology tradeshow.  The AquaSonus™ passive-sonar aquatic security system will be displayed alongside other award winning products in the Innovations 2006 Showcase, booth #72444, in the CES Innovations Plus exhibits at the Sands Expo and Convention Center during the 2006 International CES, January 5-8, 2006 in Las Vegas, NV.  For those unable to attend the exhibits, award winners can be seen by visiting
